Author Lysette Cohenabout this book: As a child rocking the Polish/Czech divide, I grew up on stories of Eastern European Folklore and Mythology. Perun, Baba Yaga, and Koshchei the Deathless were my first friends. Their stories intrigued me, challenged me, and sometimes even comforted me. As I grew, these characters began to become more and more like long-lost friends and their stories began to coalesce into scenes and then books. It wasn't until I was well into my twenties that I began to write these stories down.

My first book, Destiny's Embrace, took several years to finish. It was truly a labor of love. Instead of using an established character, I created the Strážce, the guardian of the Slavic pantheon. As a mortal, she had no idea that the stories she taught as a professor were actually real. But when her powers where unlocked and she had the safety of an entire pantheon dumped into her lap, what would she do?

I chose the title, Destiny's Embrace, as a commentary of the changes of life. What happens when your life takes an unexpected and irrevocable turn? How do you deal with it? Do you steer into the change or do you fight against it with all your might? Do you whine and cry or do you rise to the occasion?

Destiny's Embrace is categorized as a paranormal romance novel. However, as life has different facets, so do novels. While the book contains romance, it is also filled with adventure, suspense, and magic.
